Format: Audio CD
The Carpenters were nothing less than a global success in their heyday. Their light, easy-listening music belies the skill and craft that went into their songs. Richard had an exceptional talent for songwriting and producing the songs, and Karen's voice puts most singers to shame. I've had this album for years and love it! It's the perfect antidote to the endless sleazy nonsense, performed by mediocre singers and polished electronically to make it palatable. Karen Carpenter would have laughed at the very idea of autotune, never mind needed it. This is music that has stood the test of time and still sounds fresh. Magic!

It is said that Karen Carpenter only ever had to record a single take for every song she ever recorded. Who could say that nowadays with such throwaway trash polluting the airwaves. I personally prefer harder rock, but to deny they musical brilliance of The Carpenters and especially Karen's beautiful voice is to deny music.

Listening to The Carpenters certainly brings back some happy memories for me, so why am I only giving 3 stars?
There's no problem with the choice of songs or the duration of the CD, it's over 70 minutes.
The problem is that Richard Carpenter has remixed 12 of the 21 songs and, to my ears, the results are not quite the same as the original recordings.
I am in a minority as other reviewers have given 4 or 5 stars, however the CD inlay/booklet itself says nothing about the updates, which it should have.

I enjoy listening to this CD as much as I enjoyed listening to the old vinyl in the 1970's! so sad that Karen is not with us any more.

Excellent compilation of easy listening, lovely music. Karen has a fabulous voice and Richard's arrangements are great. We have been Carpenters fans for many years. This is a great, terrific value compilation. Highly recommended.
